Evans is a Beast!

Well, I was pretty happy with Evans' size at my appointment two weeks as he was 4.5 pounds and in the 50% for weight. I thought that was pretty normal and nothing out of the ordinary. Today, on the otherhand, was another story. Apparently Evans has totally chunked up and now weighs 6 pounds and is in the 70th percentile for weight! WHAT? What is going to happen if I go another 6 weeks?? That means that I could have a 9 pound child. God help me. I mean, I know that babies slow down their growth at the end but something tells me that Evans isn't going to stall out at 6 pounds. Yikes! The doctor even called him CHUBBY and showed us his belly fat! Nice. I am sure that this in NO WAY reflects my eating habits and what I have chosen to feed this child! :) Now I don't see my doctor for another THREE weeks because her office is closing for summer vacation. Some timing huh? I'm frightened to see how big this baby gets while she is closed. And frightened to see how big I get. At my next appointment I will be almost 38 weeks. I hope I make it until then! She said she thought I would make it to my next appointment but I guess we will see! I wonder every night as I waddle to the bathroom how much longer this is going to last!! I don't know what I am going to do but I feel like time has completely stopped!!

I feel your pain! I went into labor at 34 weeks and my daughter was born weighing 6lbs 3oz (She was six weeks early!). I thought good heavens, if I'd gone to 40 weeks she would have been like 12lbs. I'm sure it has nothing to do with what you eat, it's just the baby and the genetics.

Well, I might remind you that YOU weighed 8lb.1oz. Your sister weighted 9lb.2oz. And your brother weighed a whopping 9lb.9oz. We quickly decided to close down the baby factory after that. We grow 'em big down here in Georgia!

Big boy! I thought babies gained a half pound each week after the 36th week. You'll go early if thats the case. Don't worry, with the epidural, you won't feel a thing!!
